However, there are many instances where things aren’t so clear. Some antagonists are fantastic manipulators, and even a few of the movies’ leads have been forced to rely on deception at one point or another. Subsequently, these characters would make for efficient imposters in Among Us, capable of eliminating an entire ship without generating the suspicion of crewmates.
Hans was a sinister and intelligent nobleman who went to Elsa’s court in hopes of impressing Anna and gaining her favor. Upon her departure to see her sister, he was left in charge of the kingdom — which would later be proven as a massive mistake.
In a shocking twist of events, he attempted to freeze Anna to death after having successfully deceived both the audience and the film’s main characters. Considering his chicanery, it follows that he’d make for an equally capable liar to any crewmates.
Aladdin began as a pauper who used a magic lamp in order to make himself a prince. This significantly increased his social standing and even put him in the sights of Jasmine, perhaps the most beautiful woman in the kingdom.

However, he didn’t actually have royal lineage; his status was as limited as the parade he entered on. Nonetheless, he managed to deceive an entire nation, indicating that he has the skills to avoid the criticism of crewmates as he picks them off.
Rourke was the leader of the expedition intended to discover Atlantis. A brilliant commander and leader, he managed to keep his intentions regarding the indigenous society he found secret until it was time to put his plans into full swing.
Considering how well he can act casually around the crew’s morally upright characters, such as Milo or Doctor Sweet, it follows he’d be able to keep the crewmates’ trust as he led them on a fake hunt for the imposter. His charisma was proven by the fact that most of the expeditionary force sided with him over the Atlanteans before the final battle.
Ratcliffe was the governor of the English during their efforts to establish a foothold in the New World. He saw the Native Americans’ presence as a complication to his gold-digging schemes and used the most convenient excuse possible to attack them: specifically, the abduction of John Smith.
While Ratcliffe’s means of argument may be inherently divisive, his leadership skills were proven when stirring up his forces and leading them into battle. He would only need to convince a portion of the crewmates of his innocence and turn the rest against each other for a perfect imposter victory.
Mother Gothel was a diabolical manipulator who imprisoned Rapunzel for years. She convinced the young girl that her protection from the outside world was necessary, when in reality, she simply wanted to harvest the healing power of her hair.

Considering her ability to hide from the kingdom’s authorities and win the hearts of others, it follows that she’d make a fantastic imposter.
Clopin was an elusive rogue in the story of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Although he presented himself as a playful trickster, he was actually far more violent than his demeanor suggested, as proven when capturing Quasimodo and Phoebus, bringing them to the Court of Miracles, and preparing to execute them.
Given his ability to avoid the authorities for years and conduct his attacks in secrecy, Clopin would a perfect imposter. His flashy presentation and ability to deflect accusations would guarantee his survival whenever an emergency meeting was called.
Gaston may not be the most intelligent Disney villain, but he’s extremely charismatic and ruthless. He managed to convince an entire town that the Beast was evil despite most of them never so much as seeing him before. Further, he was vicious enough to ambush the Beast after his presumed defeat and nearly killed him with a knife to the back.
Subsequently, it follows that he could muster up a similar “hunt” for anyone who accused him of being an imposter to get them ejected from the ship. However, this strategy would only be effective as long as ejects were not confirmed.
Ursula was a brilliant negotiator and manipulator, as proven when she struck a deal with Ariel that she knew she couldn’t keep. Moreover, the villainess was a master of disguise, capable of assuming the likeness of a beautiful woman in order to keep the prince’s attention.
Should her skills translate into Among Us, she would be able to change colors and frame whoever she wanted. This would make Ursula nearly unstoppable, with the only way to incriminate her being her absence on the ship.
Since her father was too weak to join China’s armies, Mulan inserted herself in his place. By masquerading as a man, she fulfilled her family’s obligations to their nation — and successfully deceived her comrades for a significant amount of time.
Given her knack for fooling others, it follows that she would be a qualified imposter. This is further proven through her ability to use her terrain to her advantage, as illustrated when she collapsed a mountain on Shan Yu in their first encounter and shot him into fireworks during her second.
Scar embodies all the qualities an imposter would need to be successful. He was ruthless, patient, and, most importantly, charismatic. After Mufasa’s death, few challenged the validity of his reign, especially given the hyenas who enforced his will.
Should he convince a fraction of the crewmates of his innocence, he would be able to assassinate dissenters and thin the ship’s numbers until he no longer required his loyal followers as pawns.
